  • What is Virtual Reality? • Also known by its acronym “VR”. • Some define it as a “collection of technologies” [Isdale, Jerry, “What is Virtual Reality? A Web-Based Introduction”, page 2] like the head-mounted display, data glove, and multimedia. • Computer-generated artificial environment. • Which is also known as a “virtual environment” or VE. • Commonly used in games and engineering. • Recently, VRML.Copyright © 2004 Nicolas Zhen-Wei Yip.

  • History of Virtual Reality • Conceptualised by cinematographer Morton Heilig in the early 1960s. • Normal movies/pictures fill 18% of spectators’ vision, Heilig wanted to change that by filling all 100% of it. • No financial support for him, so he created this “This virtual workstation utilized 3-D video, obtained with three 35 mm cameras mounted on the cameraman. The setup included stereo sound, integrated with the full 3-D camera views. The viewer could ride a motorcycle while sensing the wind, simulated by a fan, and even potholes in the road. The machine was crude, but it opened the door for a multitude of ideas - a whole new world not yet discovered.” [Scott Tate, “Virtual Reality: A Historical Perspective”] [Scott Tate, “Virtual Reality: A Historical Perspective”] • Finally, Ivan Sutherland of the University of Utah in the United States further developed virtual reality in 1965. • Initially experimented with three-dimensional displays. • A system to surround viewers was developed, which became adopted by the US Government for their space (Apollo) and military programmes (flight simulators). • Where it is mainly used now, other than computer games.Copyright © 2004 Nicolas Zhen-Wei Yip.

  • Virtual Reality As A Communication Tool • Why? Text-based seems boring and plain. This would bring an ultimate experience! • Allows natural interaction. • May incorporate sensation, enabling users to feel each other or the objects around. • Example of one possible successful venture = There.Com (whose screenshots are below) • More screenshots: http://www.thereuniverse.com/screenshots.shtml (Well, I couldn’t get those here as they are really large in dimension)Copyright © 2004 Nicolas Zhen-Wei Yip.

  • Interesting points to note •There is the digital divide. •Internet connection speeds and infrastructure. •Generally, loading times of these stuff is so SLOW! (But if we follow Moore’s Law of computing power, technology would surely catch up) •Resources needed to upgrade the technology (BILLIONS OF $$$!). •Health issues. •Security and privacy.Copyright © 2004 Nicolas Zhen-Wei Yip.

  • Implications of virtual reality. •Uncomfortable headset. •Putting on any headset, there is ease of crime committed to the wearer. •“Immersion rooms” take up a lot of space and cost lots of money. •Especially the older generation, many are unwilling to learn. •Internet connections? [Scott Tate, “Virtual Reality: A Historical Perspective”]Copyright © 2004 Nicolas Zhen-Wei Yip.

  • Conclusion •Virtual reality might only be for the younger generation. •Interesting and exciting field. •Security and privacy. •Health issues still. •Nothing beats real-life!Copyright © 2004 Nicolas Zhen-Wei Yip.
